The retail broker's sole payment for these services is 3% of the commission offered to the broker by each insurance carrier providing coverage to the Board. Should the broker express a need to utilize an intermediary to assist them in the placement of complex insurance placements such as the District's property insurance policies, an additional fee of up to 5% of the commission offered to the broker by each insurance carrier providing coverage to the Board, may be paid to the intermediary. In no case will the commissions, in total, exceed 8% of the commission offered to the broker by the carrier.
